Advice: How to choose an acupuncturist
Welcome to Acupuncture NZ. Formerly known as the New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists (NZRA), Acupuncture NZ is the longest established and largest democratic and professional body representing traditionally trained practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in New Zealand.
When choosing to be treated by a member of Acupuncture NZ, you can be assured that you are in the hands of a safe and fully competent practitioner who meets the highest standards of education, professional conduct and practice. All members of Acupuncture NZ are bound by the Rules and Code of Professional Ethics of the organisation and are required to complete on-going professional education in order to maintain their Annual Practising Certificate.
Members have been recognised as ACC Treatment Providers since 1990. Anyone who has been injured as a result of an accident and has had an ACC claim raised may choose to have acupuncture treatment to assist with their recovery.
A member of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) and the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS), Acupuncture NZ also has strong affiliations with acupuncture associations particularly in Australia, China, the United States, Britain and throughout Europe.
Acupuncture is a part of Chinese Medicine. Many of our members practice other modalities of Chinese medicine including:
Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tuina.
